The Southern Tennessee Amish Map
Ethridge Tennessee is where you will find the oldest and largest old order Swartzentruber Amish Community in Tennessee! We have been all over the state of Tennessee to each Amish community and every Amish visitor should have the Ethridge community on their list of Amish communities to see! Not only is Ethridge the oldest and largest community, they are the only community with a fully developed tourism support system to help visitors go into Amish country on a horse and buggy! Many people ask if this is merely a tourist trap and we say no! The Amish community is right off highway 43 where you can stop and get a map or something from us to go out with your own car and visit the Amish yourselves! See the photos below of the Amish homes and signs of what they sell that you can see from your car!
The Amish community is also surrounded by other shops that feature vendors who go out and find items to put in their store. The visitor who loves the Amish for their religious conservative downhome country living will love these antique stores for their museum quality items. Ethridge is the town just north of Lawrenceburg, which is known for being the birthplace of southern gospel music! Still to this day you can see the James D. Vaughan museum on the Lawrenceburg square where you can see the equipment he used to cut records and make song books. The old piano and mic station are a testimony of the first radio station in Tennessee called WOAN where Mr. Vaughan would play his records from his published quartets. Lawrence county has a lot of places you can visit while you see the Amish community shown below!
Since you are on the Amish of Ethridge website, we already have pages devoted to points of interest and other activities that can enhance your vacation! You need a few days here to fully enjoy the Amish community and the other activities! Below are links to these pages where we feature our points of interest!
